Just when I thought I saw everything when I read about people buying followers on ebay, today I saw something new. Tweets for sale! Yes! People are selling tweets. I am not going to mention about the website here though.
Apparently the website is selling tweets price ranging from $10 to $30 depending on how many tweets and type of tweets. You can buy 500 Gambling Tweets for just $10.00, or buy 4800 Inspirational Tweets for $10.00.
Although the idea of buying tweets may seem like it help those who are posting inspiration or motivational tweets, but seriously it doesn’t help at all. Why? This is because twitter is a two way street. It is not about posting tweets anymore, its about connection and engagement.
I tend to think that retweeting is FAR better than buying tweets and scheduling 4800 of the tweets bought. Retweeting helps to build relationship because people notice you, they even thank you for retweeting them. On the other hand, schedulling 4800 inspirational tweets or gambling tweets screams “I am a spammer” since it makes people feel that those who are scheduling tweets are a bots.
Below is a screen shot from the website:
